October brings vibrant leaves and pumpkin patches, but it also marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness, fund research, and save lives.
“1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That’s one person every 2 minutes in the U.S.”
“For those at average risk, have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. If you have any signs of breast cancer, finding it early and treating it early may save your life.”
“Early detection and effective treatment are critical to reducing breast cancer deaths.”
